Odds and Ends

  • Before the Civil Rights Movement, I bet there were a lot of mix-ups over colored pencils. How could you tell the difference between colored pencils (colorful pencils for whites) and colored pencils (regular pencils for blacks)? I bet this was one of the things that pushed Dr. King over edge.

  • You know how in Fight Club they have that ongoing conversation about who they would wanna fight if they could pick anyone in the world? I'd pick Jay-Z. I don't have anything against him, but it'd probably be nice for him to have a nice round 100 problems for once. Actually, I do kinda hate Jay-Z.

  • If Kirsten Dunst is struggling to tell you bad news, I think it's a good idea to tell her to Bring It On. The resulting laughter would help ease the tension.

  • If a DJ does a Duran Duran double play on the radio, it's like Duran Duran Duran Duran... and if Karen O ever joined forces with the Flaming Lips it'd be the Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeahs.

  • I have a bad habit of saying "you too" to the person at the drive-thru window, regardless of what they say...

    Sometimes it works: 
    • Have a nice day
    • Thank you
    • Who sings Sunday Bloody Sunday?
        Sometimes it doesn't: 
    • Enjoy your meal
    • Need any ketchup?
    • We're closed
